The Marietta Center for Advanced Academics (MCAA) and the Bagwell College of Education at Kennesaw State University (KSU), recently signed an education partnership through the Cobb Chamber Partners in Education program.
MCAA teachers will serve as mentors to KSU Elementary and Early Childhood Education undergraduate students as they complete their senior year field and clinical experiences at MCAA.
“Our partnership also includes development of a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) concentration for the Elementary and Early Childhood Education master’s degree program,” said Jennifer Hernandez, MCAA principal. “The collaboration also allows their graduate students to observe and conduct research at MCAA.”
“Working together we have the power to affect positive change for educators and students. We are proud to share our knowledge and experience in STEM education to support KSU’s efforts to advance a quality STEM education to teaching professionals and K-12 students across our great state,” added Hernandez.
